  • Hi, would like to nominate Nitin Kathuria (KPMG) for influencing a major change in the organization to curtail data leakage preventions. Below is the summary of the activity :
    Data leakage is an important concern for the business organizations in this increasingly networked world these days. Unauthorized disclosure may have serious consequences for an organization in both long term and short term. Risks may include losing clients and stakeholders confidence, loss of reputation and potential legal implications.To prevent from all these from happening, Data leakage prevention(DLP) is the category of solutions which we implemented in our organization to apply relevant controls for preventing such leakage of sensitive or confidential information to unauthorized parties within or outside our organization.
    We implemented policies to prevent and monitor for all common device typs and ports: USB devices, Internet uploads/ web browsers, network printers, cloud/file sharing, instant messaging and emails. This helped us tremendously to prevent any sensitive or confidential information being uploaded onto the internet or sent outside our domain without our knowledge. We also conducted awareness sessions with colleagues to make them understand the importance of protecting the information. With successful implementation, we were able to track number of violations happening within the environment and took appropriate measures including disciplinary actions to adhere to our contractual obligations with clients etc. With tool implementation,our organization has controlled number of data transfers or uploads that were happening to external domains which has reduced the number of potential data leakage incidents for us.We have put stringent monitoring in place to ensure all alerts are investigated with appropriate messaging.We have seen reduction of incidents for over an year after putting the control and Senior Management is very content with relevant controls / measures that are in place.
